Bootcut jeans are not something that I think of as being particularly flattering for me, but I loved the bootcuts in Angie's Friday post and thought I would give it a try.

I found this pair (by shopping my closet) - they are likely to be circa 2002... so if you think they are hideous, there is no problem, out they go and it gives me permission to buy a new pair. They are a bit loose and may be more flattering if they were more fitted on my upper thighs. It would be useful to know why these don't work, the lower rise is likely to be an issue, but any other comments or suggestions would be great.

I wore it in a very 70's inspired way - with leopard shirt, brown boots and a favourite brown blazer that I bought and need to wear more often as I love the cut of it (a classic Hugo Boss blazer). Added in the new navy Kate Spade bag to a bunch of oldies - so sorry no finds for these old items.

Comments, suggestions etc most welcome. This is really just an experiment to see if this is a style that I should think about getting on board with - so if you think it is a fail - happy to pass on it and move onto another trend.
